9780199755905 - Roald hoffmann on the philosophy, art, and science of chemistry

Artikelomschrijving

Nobel laureate Roald Hoffmanns contributions to chemistry are well known. Less well known, however, is that over a career that spans nearly fifty years, Hoffmann has thought and written extensively about a wide variety of other topics, such as chemistrys relationship to philosophy, literature, and the arts, including the nature of chemical reasoning, the role of symbolism and writing in science, and the relationship between art and craft and science. In Roald Hoffmann on the Philosophy, Art, and Science of Chemistry, Jeffrey Kovac and Michael Weisberg bring together twenty-eight of Hoffmanns most important essays. Gathered here are Hoffmanns most philosophically significant and interesting essays and lectures, many of which are not widely accessible. In essays such as Why Buy That Theory, Nearly Circular Reasoning, How Should Chemists Think, The Metaphor, Unchained, Art in Science, and Molecular Beauty, we find the mature reflections of one of Americas leading scientists.
